Again a re-release?

How exciting...... :-/


Yeah. I have stopped getting excited about these biweeklies because it never seems to be "new".

And, will this new release have anything that these other two haven't?


See my post towards the middle of the page with the Intrada forum url. Seems a straight remaster.

Thanks, folks. My copy is stuck deep in storage at the moment so I can't get to it, but I believe it's the earlier release. So it looks like it will be worth getting this one to replace it with.

I don't have Part 3 in my collection so I am more than thrilled to finally add this with the other two, that said I was not too keen on Part 2, maybe it is time to revisit that score again.

Between those two above Ian, night and day mate.
I have (or had) both issues and the improvement in sound on the 2nd release is massive.


I can't confirm that, but have not actually listened to them side by side, though I own both. The original Intrada release already had good sound (at least I never had a problem with it), the remastered re-release pumped it up somewhat and there is a clear difference, but I would not call it "night and day". But since I have both CDs, I'm more than willing to check for cues where there may be such an enormous difference.

I've only got the old Scotti Bros LP. Must have bought it around 1988... I really do love the Goldsmith tracks, and I'm generally not a fan of JG's post-1979 work (with about a half dozen exceptions). Anyone try to convince me that I should upgrade? I very rarely double dip.

You definitely should! Everybody should!

You'll get the amazing "The Game" with improved sound, plus tons of additional music not available on the old Scotti Bros LP/CD.

Want my opinion, my old beardless bobcat?

Based on the clues, it has to be Ken Thorne's complete score for Help!

There was the Help! LP.

Then there was the suite on a Ken Thorne comp.

Now they are releasing the complete score, but the Beatles tracks are not available.

Third time's the charm.

I'm in!

Oh yes please, Tall! But first let me guess...

1) You think I should grow my beard back.

2) The best track on the old Scotti Bros LP was "He Ain't Heavy", and Jerry Goldsmith was a merely "serviceable" composer, although The Omen's quite good.

3) You are particularly averse to this score and film because it shows the Russkies as the baddies, when in fact they didn't "invade" Afghanistan at all, but were instead "asked in" by the Afghan government to "lend a hand".

4) All of the above.

5) None of the above.

6) One of the above.

7) Two of the above.

I just found out why George Martin didn't do the underscore.

Luckily for us. "Help!" is a top-drawer spy score, in the mold of John Barry, Laurie Johnson, Edwin Astley, etc.

Can't wait for the full score. Thanks Intrada!

Wow, those are frikkin' awesome! What size are they, and where did you get high enough quality scans / files to print them at that scale?

Did I ever say “serviceable”?

Those posters are 30"x30" squares. I just downloaded the artwork that Intrada, LLL and FSM make available to the public on their websites. I work for a large printing company and I use large format color plotters that use wax (instead of toner or ink) to print on plain paper. I tape them to my walls with common clear tape. Here are a few more in my dining area....

Incredible. I'm especially amazed that those tiny 600 x 600 px Intrada images scale up so nicely. Are there any noticeable artifacts at that scale?

If I don't go larger than 30x30 then there is little or no pixelation/distortion. I originally tried making them 36x36 but it was a little too stretched out so I kept them at 30 inches. Glad I did because I can fit a few more on the wall at the smaller size! smile
